Wimbledon: Summer Lawns

JUST back from a walk around the All England Club ahead of the women’s final.
The grounds are packed, with people still coming in through the gates.
Lots of smiles in the sunshine for a special occasion, although there may be a shower later in the day.
The band is playing on Centre Court and it’s a wonderful English summer scene.
I took my camera along for the stroll and thought you might like to see a few random snaps.
Meanwhile Roger Federer has already been in to see us for his pre-final press conference.
There was a little bit of implied criticism of how Rafael Nadal slows the game down on court, but our Roger was mostly his usual respectful self.

It’s clear those who expressed doubts about Federer after last month’s French Open defeat have made him even more determined to retain his men’s singles title.
Rafa is due in at 2pm…but will almost certainly be late.
Let’s hope he turns up on time tomorrow.
